Adriana Guadalupe of Communication Sciences and Audiovisual Media completed a semester at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana.

When you entered Uni, did you know that there were international programs?

Yes, I had a notion and that's why I also wanted to enter with more enthusiasm.

At what point and why did you start thinking about applying for a scholarship and studying in another country?  

At all times, I had never left Mexico and I wanted to do it: to get to know another country.

Why did you decide to study in that country?

I have seen lectures given by Colombian people for my faculty and I was very excited to meet her.

How was the scholarship application process?

Efficient, despite filling out some paperwork, I feel I was able to resolve it well.

How did you prepare for this new experience?

I don't feel like I was prepared, I couldn't believe it yet, but I was watching videos of trips to this country and tried to soak up the culture before I arrived.

How did you feel when you arrived in the new country?

I felt very strange, but with a lot of emotion.

How have you been received at the university where you arrived?

They received me spectacularly, especially the educational quality is excellent.

What do you miss the most about Mexico and UNI?
I create the free gym at Uni.

What is the most exciting thing you have experienced so far in this experience? And the most difficult?

The hardest thing I think was missing the food in Mexico and the most exciting thing was all the didactics I had to do, it was a challenge but a lot of learning.

How do you think this experience will influence you as a person and professionally?
It complemented my professional studies in many ways, I was able to solve cultural and school problems, etc. I am more confident.

What advice would you give to those who are about to go on exchange to another country?
That they go, that they are encouraged to learn new things and experiences for their professional development.

Would you recommend these opportunities offered by UNI to your colleagues?

I have already done it and yes, 100%
